Question about Kenmore 23513 Progressive Bagged Canister Vacuum

Kenmore 23513 canister vacuum won't turn off

The switch mounted on the handle still controls the belt motor, but the only way I can turn off the vacuum motor is to unplug it. Anything I can do to fix this? If so, would appreciate a pointer to the source for the parts. Thanks.

Is there two switches for the unit, one for the handle (pick up unit) and brush assembly, and one for the vacuum motor? If so it seems that the handle unit is o.k. but the problem may be the switch to the vacuum motor. I would suggest testing the vacuum motor switch with an ohm meter for continuity through the switch. If its at fault replace it. You can probably purchase one from Sears or maybe Radio Shack.
Good Luck!
p.s. do not work on vacuum if plugged in.

The belt on the power nozzle is so tight that it is not turning and the power nozzle won't turn on when you press the handle


Possible bearing in the motor or brush roll is locked up. Check to see if the light comes on. If it does not, then you have an electrical problem but that is a separate problem from the belt being tight. Let us know if you need service....www.rainvac.com

See were to put the swr driver on both sides and not sure where to pull up


Hello,

I'm pretty sure you're asking about a Kenmore canister vacuum,

Here's what you'll need to replace a belt on a Kenmore2_bing.gif canister vacuum:

- Phillips Head Screw Driver
- Flat Head Screw Driver

There are two different types of belts2_bing.gif that are used on a Kenmore Canister. One of them is called a cogged belt, which has little teeth on the inside of the belt. The other is called a serpantine belt, which looks like a car belt, and has little grooves on the inside of the. You'll be able to tell which on yours takes after opening up the power nozzle.

This is the Cogged or Geared Belt with little teeth inside the belt:

This is the other Serpantine Belt that has little grooves on the inside of the belt:

Here's how you can replace the belt on your Kenmore Canister vacuum cleaner2_bing.gif. First, before taking apart the power nozzle to change the belt, try pressing the overload protection system reset switch. This overload protection feature is designed to shut off the power nozzle if something gets stuck in the brushes, to prevent the belt from breaking.

Step 1. If you're power nozzle is a square shaped nozzle like the nozzle that I took a picture of above, then you'll need to first remove the headlight cover before you can access the roller brush and belt. Simply squeeze both sides of the headlight housing, and while squeezing, lift upwards with your fingers exactly where my fingers are located in this picture:

Step 2. After the headlight cover has been removed, you'll see two screws underneath of the headlight cover, directly in front of the neck of the power nozzle. You'll need to remove both of these screws. I have circled these screws in red:

Step 3. After both of these screws have been removed, turn the power head upside down, so the roller brush is facing upwards. You should see writing that points to an area to put your flat head screw driver. You'll need to put the flat head screw driver down inside of the nozzle, and pry the top blue housing from the black bottom housing. Here's where the screw driver should go on the left side0723429.jpg:

Here's a picture of the screwdriver prying off the right side:

Step 4. Now turn the power nozzle back over on top, and remove the top housing of the nozzle. You may have to push the handle release pedal in order to take the top housing off.

Kenmore canister vacuum will not turn on


No, the only effect of not cleaning them would be decreased air flow and consequently . The time between changing filters depends on how much the vacuum cleaner is used. Common failures are damaged cords and a damaged or failed power switch

Power head for Kenmore Canister Vac


Another potential problem for the increase in difficulty in turning the beater bar (drum) could stem from extremely dirty bearings, located at each end of the beater bar. I've seen hair knotted up to the point it chokes the bar and significantly reduces its ability tpo turn.

Brush does not turn on my vaccum


If there is no suction when you disconnect the beater bar assembly near the hand hold where you grab the vacuum, then there may be either a restriction in the vacuum line between there and the vacuum section (that rolls around behind you), or the vacuum line from the handle point to the rollaround section is not properly connected. This all assumes the vacuum motor in the rollaround is running.

The beater bar section does nothing but cause dirt particles to be sucked into the vacuum system. The vacuum or suction is created in the rollaround unit.

Motor goes on and off briefly at regular intervals


Sounds like you may have a bad or loose connection, could be one of wires in the hose to the handle harness or the harness itself may be causing the problem. Also be the motor or relay causing a problem.

Brush won't turn


Remove the drive belt and check the rod coming out the motor for operation when the unit is in the on position. If the motor is turning the motor is not at fault but good. Turn off unit! Next, try to turn the brush by hand. If it is hard to turn check both sides
(the ends) for hair build up. It could possibly be loaded with hair or some other type of string like material that has accumulated over the years and is restricting the movement of the brush. Also check the bearings on the ends too.
Good Luck

Vacuum won't come on


The switch in the hose maybe bad, motor problem, or some of these cannisters have a relay mounted by the motor, it may be bad.
